Gluten-Free Cut Out Sugar Cookies

Gluten-Free Cut Out Sugar Cookies. They are nice and fluffy but firm enough to firm so you can decorate them with icing without them falling apart on you. They are very much like the pre-made, refrigerated Pillsbury sugar cookie shapes you see in the grocery stores.

They are buttery, fluffy and lightly sweet. This gluten-free cookie dough holds its shape and does not spread out when you bake it. It’s perfect for Christmas cookies and other holiday shapes.

·         1 ½ teaspoons baking powder

·         2 tablespoons gluten-free all-purpose flour (for rolling)

2.            Beat in the egg, pure vanilla, and pure almond extract

3.            In a medium bowl add the gluten-free flour, xanthan gum (leave out if your flour already has it) baking powder and stir to blend ingredients.

4.            Slowly pour flour mixture into the batter and mix until fully combined. The cookie dough will be like soft playdough.

Pro Tips For Making Cut Out Sugar Cookies

  • Make sure the butter is softened and mix the dough really well. Butter must be softened, but not melty. If there are pockets of butter, you’ll find them to melt during baking and cause the cookies to spread.

  • Do not skip the step of refrigerating the dough, waiting for the dough to chill helps the sugar cookies keep their shape.
